Change City Bylaws to Support Animal Rescues

WITHOUT PREJUDICE 

Through extensive research of many City Bylaws, it is clearly evident that animal rescue organizations are often not exempt from the laws that protect and permit breeding in catteries and kennels.  It is imperative to send a message to our nation that there is a growing crisis of unwanted, abandoned, and homeless animals; most notably cats and dogs.  By "exempting" kennels and catteries; not the various, sometimes smaller scale animal rescues, we are promoting the breeding of "animals" when there are thousands of homeless cats and dogs in need of love and medical care.  Our City Bylaws need to encourage and support the efforts of all licensed, incorporated, not-for-profit, and charitable animal rescues and halt the favourtism toward breeding in catteries and kennels.  As long as animal breeders are exempt from City Bylaws and rescue efforts are subject to impossible restrictions, the homeless animal overpopulation crisis will continue to grow out of control.
